Are you paying sticker at both?
I was going to Chicago until Penn offered me $$. You seemed to hate Chicago, based on your earlier thread. Don't put yourself through 3 years of that.

yep, sticker at either. I had mixed feelings about chicago. I would probably have less fun there, but I think the degree would open more doors for me (particularly if I want to do academia) and I'm not sure I want to close anything off to myself if I'm paying the same price for both.

if Penn gave me $$...I would be there in a hot second, it would make my decision wayyy easier :lol:

Try negotiating, if you haven't already. Lol I tried and that led to my withdrawal.
If you want to work in the northeast, the difference between Chicago and Penn is marginal. The difference between CCN and MVPB seems to be a bit overblown on these boards.

Although to be fair I would take Chicago at sticker over Penn at sticker, but that's without having visited Chicago.

Oh, ok.
I tried and the director/dean of financial aid said no and insinuated I should withdraw.

I think it has to do with their policy of not matching offers. She seemed incredibly stuck up and condescending. I talked to a few Chicago students who were really nice and helpful, but they all seemed a bit too intense for me, so it's probably best I don't attend.

CONGRATS! Is your profile true (being the only school to which you applied)? I multiply my "congrats" by 100 million, if so! That is great!

Congrats lawyering! You are a champ :)

Congrats as well!

Also, just wanted to toot Stanford's horn a little bit. I have been sending e-mails/calling faculty and students left and right in a feeble attempt to make an informed decision re: Y vs. S, and I must say that Stanford has been nothing short of incredible responding and putting me in touch with the right people. I still have to wait for the ASWs, but I have a sneaking suspicion that I may stay in the Bay Area next year.

Yeah, actually, it is true, but only because of the somewhat unique situation I'm currently in. Also, I was fully planning on reapplying next year and spreading a much larger net.

Thanks everyone for the congratulations. TLS can feel a bit bizarre sometimes because we're all in one sense competing against each other, so I appreciate the kind words. Hopefully a few more of you get a call today.

Got a waitlist letter today. Not sure yet whether I'll be withdrawing or not. The letter was really nice, at least. Congrats to everyone getting good news!
